There’s nothing easier and more fun than growing your own salad mix! Grow salads outside your back door, in a planter, raised bed, pot or directly in the ground. Whichever way you grow them, harvest as you need thereby allowing for a continuous supply of fresh salad greens.
A salad doesn’t need to consist solely of lettuce. It can be a collection of lettuce varieties, mustards, brassicas, asian greens, herbs, edible flowers and more. The more colours and textures, the more flavours you’ll have.
Check out my lettuce growing series for lettuce growing information from seed to harvest, including storage and lettuce types.
